Change your world
My ‘true north’ is to change things. To take something and transform it into something else, whether this is an old IT system, a workplace culture, a set of business processes, a state of mind, a house in need of renovation, a vintage chair from a charity shop, a packet of seeds that will turn into plants and subsequently into food if given nurture, or transforming a 100 year old heritage building into a thriving community enterprise.
As humans, we are programmed to embrace the familiar, and fear change. This primeval instinct can be traced back to prehistoric times, when staying in the cave was safe, because those who ventured out might encounter a woolly mammoth. Resistance to change is part of our DNA, and in our modern world it manifests itself in a myriad of different ways. The sensation of butterflies prior to a major event, cold feet before the big day, or the desire to stay in a familiar job. In the workplace, resistance to change can be seen in particular in project delivery, when progress can frequently grind to a halt due to stakeholder reluctance to get on board with the proposed change.
